Photos Redone - Yosemite National Park/Mono Lake

As I learn more RAW photo processing techniques, I get better and better with my results. Recently I went back and redone some of my photos that I felt I didn't adequately process the first time through that was worth reprocessing. Today I am here to show you the new results I have for Yosemite National Park and Mono Lake from my 2012 and 2013 trip. You can view my original photos and other trip photos from 2013 here. You can view my original photos and other trip photos from 2012 here.

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing. If you are interested, choose one of the links below:
Important Notice to all individuals planning to visit Yosemite and Mono Basin: All National Parks are currently closed due to the ongoing government shut down. You will not be able to visit Yosemite National Park or other national parks as they are closed. Many companies and businesses are offering refunds or reschedules to anyone who reserved in advance. If you have questions about your reservations, you should contact the company and business you reserved with.

The US government is the king for stupid things. Ever heard of the Stargate Project? Apparently during WWII, our government spent $20 million on psychics to predict future events. It was later canceled because it turns out the psychics can't predict accurately. More info on that here. As you can see the US government is ran by a bunch of idiots. I also don't give a **** about who caused this shut down. All I know is that I love National Parks and I love Yosemite National Park, and the people who is running this country is making the citizens and tourists suffer.

I will first start off with photos from my 2013 trip.

Loved the blue sky and the clouds that day. Made for a really nice country scenery. The road you see is SR-140. I took this on my drive to Yosemite National Park from the SF Bay Area.

 Someone's farm fenced off with barbed wire. Still on the side of SR-140 on my drive to Yosemite National Park.

Another photo on SR-140. Loved the curve in the highway. As you can see, a pro photographer may suddenly slow and pull over with no warning at all. :P So next time you see some douche driving slowly down an empty highway, this could be the reason. LOL

The rest are from my 2012 trip.

Boardwalk at Mono Basin. 

Tufas at Mono Lake. 

Grass field with some tufa behind. I think the clouds adds a nice touch to the photo. Good thing the clouds started rolling in!  

More tufa formation at Mono Lake 


Tioga Pass in Yosemite National Park. 

This lake was near the eastern entrance of Yosemite (like near the gate).  I thought the landscape looked great so I headed down. 

 This was the meadow near the lake I think. 

 Further into Yosemite National Park, there was a stream. I took my tripod into the stream for this one. 

These are all the photos for today. I hope you have enjoyed them. Please don't forget to share with your friends and family members!
